This splendidly carved shell cameo features a very lovely lady with an upswept do and flower accenting her hair. Exquisitely set in an ornate frame of fine filigree wire work with granulation. Forming a flower like design, the decoration of the applied beads adds the detail that makes it the beauty that it is. A rope turned wire has been applied to the band for extra touch as it provides continuous flow of the intricate design. It is obvious the maker took much pride in his work.
Ring size- 6 3/4. Ca. 1920's. It is 11/16" from North to South. Marked and set in 900 Silver. This simply means it is of 90% silver content, instead of 92.5%. A European mark.
Excellent vintage condition. Wonderful acquired patina. No missing beads.
One of the nicest cameos I have seen in a ring. A fabulous addition for any collection.
